When Abigail Thomas’s husband, Rich, was hit by a car, his brain shattered. Subject to rages, terrors, and hallucinations, he must live the rest of his life in an institu­tion. He has no memory of what he did the hour, the day, the year before. This tragedy is the ground on which Abigail had to build a new life. How she built that life is a story of great courage and great change, of moving to a small country town, of a new family composed of three dogs, knitting, and friendship, of facing down guilt and discovering gratitude. It is also about her relationship with Rich, a man who lives in the eternal present, and the eerie poetry of his often uncanny perceptions. This wise, plainspoken, beautiful book enacts the truth Abigail discovered in the five years since the acci­dent: You might not find meaning in disaster, but you might, with effort, make something useful of it.

The bonds we share with our pets go beyond words and are often deeper than many of our human relationships. What is the nature of these close connections? And what if our influence on pets, both in life and especially through sickness and death, is far more powerful than we ever conceived?<br /><br />David Michie draws on ancient Buddhist wisdom, supported by contemporary science, to provide fascinating insights into animal consciousness. He proposes that the pets with whom we share our lives are not there by accident. Whether your animal companion has fur, feathers or fins, he offers a treasury of practical tools to enhance your relationship with them in everyday life, as well as during times of challenge.<br /><br />Written with humour and compassion, and including extraordinary true stories from around the world, Buddhism for Pet Lovers reveals how our animal companions may indeed be among our most precious partners. For in helping them, our own lives are incomparably enriched too.<br /><br />'If you have ever deeply loved an animal, this is, without doubt, the book for you.' Gail Pope, BrightHaven<br /><br />'Our pets offer us one of our greatest opportunities to add compassion to the world. This book helps direct us to a path toward the blossoming of that opportunity.' Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words, and What Animals Think and Feel

<b>A faded farmhouse, a devoted dog. One special summer.</b><br /><br />Melinda is already at a crossroads when the “for rent” sign beckons her down a dusty gravel lane. Facing forty, single and downsized from her stellar career at a big-city ad agency, she’s struggling to start over when a phone call brings her home to rural Iowa. <br /><br />It's not long before she moves to the country, takes on a rundown farm and its headstrong animals, and lands behind the counter of her family’s hardware store in the community of Prosper, whose motto is “The Great Little Town That Didn’t.” And just like the sprawling garden she tends under the summer sun, Melinda begins to thrive. But when storm clouds arrive on her horizon, can she hold on to the new life she's worked so hard to create?<br /><br />Filled with memorable characters, from a big-hearted farm dog to the weather-obsessed owner of the local co-op, “Growing Season” celebrates the twists and turns of small-town life. Discover the heartwarming series that’s filled with new friends, fresh starts and second chances.<br />

<b>In the little town of Prosper, the holidays are merry and bright!</b> <br /><br />As a reflective hush falls over the harvested fields surrounding her farm, Melinda packs away her memories of city life and turns her thoughts toward Thanksgiving and Christmas. She’s not only home for the holidays, but truly home at last.<br /><br />She has a list of projects that will make the season perfect, and she’s checked it more than twice: Insulate her acreage and animals against the coming winter, fill her farmhouse with festive decorations, and plan the perfect menu for her family’s Christmas dinner. And her calendar is full off the farm, too. Melinda can’t wait to use her marketing smarts to upgrade Prosper’s charming holiday festival, and bake holiday cookies with her neighbors.<br /><br />But when a mysterious visitor arrives, she is reminded there is more to the holidays than elaborate celebrations and expensive decorations. As Christmas draws near, can she set her lofty expectations aside and focus on the true spirit of the season?<br />

Suzy and the gang are spending the winter at their place in the Cayman Islands, and Chef Claire has ramped up Suzy’s new exercise program. During one of their morning runs on the beach, Suzy’s grumpiness about what she considers the torture of physical fitness is put aside when they find a man washed up on shore with a suicide note in his pocket. Despite her doubts about whether it was actually a suicide or if the man was murdered, the local authorities soon decide to accept the suicide angle and officially close the case.<br /><br />But when another body turns up, and it becomes apparent that one of her good friends is being set up for murder, Suzy begins trying to piece together parts of a puzzle that simply don’t fit. And with the help of the local authorities, a friend in the FBI, and assistance from an unexpected source, she embarks on her mission to make some sense of the strange situations playing out on the island, as well as clear her friend’s name.<br /><br />The Case of the Whimsical Weimaraner is the latest installment in B. R. Snow’s popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and is one of Suzy’s wildest rides to date. It’s a very funny look at the power of friendship, the cunning abilities of the criminal mind, and the lengths some people will go to in pursuit of money and revenge.<br />
